Discovery University Application Student Application for the 2017 Winter Term. Discovery University Application NOTE: All fields are mandatory Name:* First Last Course Description John Stuart Mill’s “Utilitarianism” Classic works in philosophy not only repay infinite re-readings, but can be fruitfully read on a variety of levels, from beginner to advanced. John Stuart Mill, the greatest British philosopher of the nineteenth century, wrote such a classic, the short tract titled “Utilitarianism”. This work is a landmark in ethical theory and it forms the basis of the dominant theory in ethics today, namely utilitarian theory. Utilitarianism is an ethical theory that judges human actions to be moral (or immoral) according to how much happiness (or unhappiness) results from them. This course will explore Mill’s classic in detail: in terms of its ideas, arguments, place in history and relevancy for today. Social Movements This course explores the nature and raison d’être of social movements. We start out by examining political contexts and basic concepts in social movement theory. Then, we will look at various social movements, their strategies, and their overall struggle for social justice. Among others, we will look at trade unions, anarchist movements, student movements, Indigenous struggle, as well as the Troubles in Ireland, and apartheid South Africa. We sometimes reserve time in class to address matters of current and immediate interest as these arise. Introduction to Jazz History This course provides an overview of the musical and social histories surrounding various modes of music making that are commonly included in the umbrella term “jazz.” Periods and styles to be covered include pre-jazz and early jazz in New Orleans, swing, bebop, cool jazz, west coast jazz, hard bop, modal jazz, Third Stream, free jazz, and jazz-rock fusion. By the end of the term, students should have achieved: a solid knowledge of the main styles and many of the key figures in jazz history; the ability to recognize and describe the stylistic features of a range of jazz styles; an understanding of various cultural issues that surround and shape jazz practice including those of race, gender, class, geography, and demographics; as well as an understanding of how jazz fits into the broader cultural history of North America.
